A big "HELLO" from South Carolina, lass.
I spent a lot of time along the Costa del Sol in 1997-99, flying to Malaga from Madrid and then driving to Sotogrande (a lovely drive down the Med coast), and worked in San Roque. Some of the prettiest landscape in the world.
Must confess, though, I NEVER saw a firearm except on the Federales. I never knew it was even legal there to own firearms.
Welcome to our 'hangout' here at GT. Lovely to have you aboard.
